1:1 Technology Program

At Eastside Catholic School, students learn to integrate their thinking and believing in ways that encourage intellectual excellence, nurture relationships and inspire a life of leadership and service to others. Technology, when used appropriately, can enhance teaching and learning while complementing and augmenting the EC touchstone of academic excellence. Through the EC 1:1 Program, students will:
  • Excel in communication across disciplines, demonstrating mastery in technological communication and responsibility in using devices
  • Cultivate the exchange and the challenge of new ideas through technology
  • Learn relevant concepts and authentic skills within a rigorous curriculum guided by standards of excellence in a culture of collaborative inquiry that uses technology appropriately and consistently
The 1:1 Program ensures that all students have equitable access to technology tools, high-quality content and instruction that allows them to expand learning beyond the school day. Using technology throughout the curriculum, teachers encourage creativity, critical thinking and problem solving. These skills will prepare students for technological demands of higher education, the workplace and lifelong learning. Students also have access to technology specific courses where they are challenged to delve deeper into technological tools such as programming languages.
